New to DSP, need help!

Started by khenming September 29, 2004
I plan to learn DSP on my own, can you guys advise on the tools that
I need.
There are two range of development platform offer by TI, which is:-

1. TMS320C6713 DSK ( Starter Kit )
2. DM642 Evalution Module

Question :
1. Is there any compiler include in the EVM?
2. What is the limitation for the DSK ( Starter Kit ) compare to EVM?
3. What books that I need to get start with it? regards,
Ming




Ming,

You can start with Nasser K. Book:
DSP System design Using the TMS320C6000.
Nasser Kehtarnavaz and Mansour Keramat

Hello Ming,
 
Welcome to the world of DSP!!
 
The following is what I think to be true [based on experience and TI documentation]...
DSK [DSP Starter Kit]
Normally a low priced, complete package.  This means board, power supply, emulator, assembler, compiler, examples and documentation.  When you buy a DSK, you are ready to start developing.  The usual analog circuitry is audio.
 
EVM [EValuation Module] - Targeted to engineers to evaluate a DSP prior to purchase or to begin software development before custom hardware is available.
Normally higher priced, usually higher performance, sometimes contains circuitry for special applications - video, communications, etc. [You usually get 'more hardware'].
Normally requires an external emulator.
May or may not include CCS - I have seen them packaged both ways. [I don't know about DM642].
 
The comparison is your case is two fold - EVM vs. DSK and 6713 vs DM642.
 
I would suggest the 6713 DSK - it is my opinion that you are the the type of person [new to DSP], for which it was designed.

Daniel,
 
I take it that you want to use an 'ADC EVM' to evaluate something [I am not sure what] - If the ADC EVM has the bandwidth to handle the analog signal and the DSK has the bandwidth to handle the I/O and processing [I realize that this is a bit over simplified], then you are in business.

Hi Mikedunn,
I got information from your discussion that" In the DSK usual analog circuitry is audio." So if i use ADC EVM to the DSK board can i evaluate IF signal i mean communication signal by the DSK board like 6711DSK?
Regards
Daniel
